Re: Do you regret buying your home?

I love it, but yes. It has lost maybe $25,000 in value and getting worse as the town is bankrupt, schools among the worst in the state and crime rates around us rising. I don't know if we can honestly get out from under it because I'm not sure it will ever sell. Depresses me to think about. :/ But I...

Re: need new microwave - what happened to Sharp?

Good luck.

We've gone through five microwaves in 7 years. That's not including a three day stretch where we went through three alone.

GE, Whirlpool, LG (the worst!), Sharp .. they're all equally cheap and terrible.

This was my first thought as well.

There likely is an area near Nashville that checks all these wants, too.

Looking for one-of-a-kind London experience for wife

Our 10th anniversary is next spring and I want to surprise the wife with a trip to London. I plan all our trips so it's easy for me, but I'm seeking out one-of-a-kind experiences for this one. A private tour if Buckingham Palace, a private event at a castle or Tower of London, etc. Anything that'd k...

Re: Seeking advice, review of portfolio

canderson, When you sell an appreciated asset you pay capital gains tax on your sale price less what you paid for it and sales expense. The rate you pay depends on your tax bracket. It's lower than the rate you pay on wages. What was paid for the asset is sometimes hard to determine if you don't ha...

Re: Seeking advice, review of portfolio

I'm not really clear on UTMAs as I hadn't heard of it before we became married. I need to examine the tax implications of withdrawing money from that account. The UTMA should have been transferred to the custody of your wife long ago and would now be no different from any other taxable account. In ...

Re: Seeking advice, review of portfolio

JW, thank you for the reply. I should have stated that more clearly - I'd only max out the Roth yearly contribution, not clean out the UTMA altogether. The UTMA has a substantial amount of money in those closed admiral shares at a low (iirc .30) cost. I guess I read too much into your post. If you ...

Seeking advice, review of portfolio

Greetings! First I should say I've long been a Boglehead, but for the last few years due to job issues, health issues and various other things I haven't (unfortunately) paid as much attention to my retirement accounts as I definitely should. Hence, finally registering here for the guidance of fellow...
